When we first walked into our room, I thought, "Oh, no!" It was very dated and small. However, we decided to give it a chance. I'm glad we did because we had a great stay. It was very clean and there were no bugs any where. The room had AC, microwave, stove, sink, and a good size "small" refrig. The bathroom only had 1 sink and a small (but not too small) shower (no tub, but I didn't care). Free WiFi in the room. The area the hotel was in was perfect. It was a very safe and well lit area. We were very comfortable walking around. A key card had to be used to get on the elevator from the ground floor and the elevator was in sight of the front desk. The hotel was 2 short blocks from Waikiki Beach (beach chairs, noodles, boogie boards and beach towels were in the lobby) and 1/2 block from a shopping area with restaurants. Every other day that area had several veggie/fruit stands that sold fresh items. We bought fruit there frequently and with our room refrig, we had fruit every day. If you stay more than 5 days, housekeeping will clean the room. We found that she actually came about every 3 days. There was also a laundry area outside the parking area. There were only 5 parking spots, but by reserving one when we made our reservations, we were never without a spot. Every member of the staff couldn't have been friendlier. We were always greeted with a smile and a wave. Any questions or small issues were dealt with quickly and with a smile. When you needed to print your Boarding Pass, it could be done from the front office. If you want budget and don't mind small and dated, this is a great place to stay. We were very happy there.
